automatic oiler on 1915 hendee indian...

the amazing automatic oiler works great.
feeding oil comes out from the upward fitting (you can barely see it in the movie) when the pump plunger goes down. (pump plunger moves slowly up and down in the little circle)



インディアンのオートマチック・オイラー作動確認。ちっこい丸の中のプランジャーが下がると、フィッティングからオイルが出る仕組み。オイルが出てくるところが見えにくいけど、あんまり出てもダメらしいです・・・

these little oil pumps are fun to play with. The Indian one is almost identical to the Excelsior item. Check to see if the stroke is adjustable on the Hendee plunger, you can set it to give just the right amount of oil.
